    This is a time for prayer, if you're a praying person.
    I wanted to call to see if there would be any kind of push to make a donation for his prayer service, but my give a shit tank is running a little low for the little stuff.

    I grew up in Dubuque, IA. They have quite a few cases. It's a relatively connected and wealthy area, which seems to be a trend for areas with lots of spread. My Grandma's 90th birthday is April 18th. She'll be home alone I sadly wonder if I'll ever see her again.
    Yep. And the Amish sniff out cheap land and snap it up. The soil is also not nearly as good as in the rest of the state...rolling hills mostly suited for grazing.

    Dubuque, Linn, Johnson, Polk all have the most cases now and are of course the wealthiest bluest counties in the state with largest populations that have the means travel...Johnson has like 30 positives from a group that took an Egyptian cruise ship. All of this mirrors what is happening in the rest of the country.

    Tell your grandma to stay home and order Hy Vee delivery...or offer to do it for her. My parents are both mid seventies with all the money they need so hopefully they stay home like they claim. Hard to hold them down though.

    Use of vader mask seems highly recommended for reminding others to keep an anti-social distance from you. Appearance is key. I'd black out the tape a little so it looks like a Halloween mask from a distance and anyone close enough to see bright tape colors coming through will know they're dealing with a home-made mask wearer. Set off their spidey sense.

    My first thought was coffee filters and I noticed I wasn't alone so just FYI, coffee filters probably aren't very effective: they allow particles through that are 100x larger than the virus and aren't very "fluffy" which means poor ratio of air flow to opportunistic particle capture (IOW a higher flow material at the same pore size might be better since you could use more layers). Filter efficiency is a spectrum, so most types will catch at least some particles that are smaller than their largest pore. To put a finer point on it, mofro has stated they are using 0.2 micrometer filters with the virus, which is about 0.125 (plus moisture if it's in a droplet, which can be huge). n95 masks are only tested down to 0.3, but are still pretty effective going a little smaller--just probably not 95%. But I would only use coffee filters as a pre-filter if you're trying to protect an n95 (or better) from clogging with large dust particles (nice for volcanic ash). This is not definitive; take the ramblings of some random goon on the internet FWIW etc. But please use dual GoPros and post footy.

    I'll apologize ahead of time for promoting on this site, but speaking of making masks...

    As you all can imagine the stripper community has been hit hard by social distancing. Many of them have a kid to support, exacerbated by a father who's been social distancing from the kid since they were born.

    To help out this community of hard working young ladies, I've set up a donation service which collects used undergarments from strippers which I sew into masks. If anyone is interested, I'll set up a thread similar to the one we do each fall for the Intuition pre-buy.

    Dude, you’re trying too hard. You should try reading it out loud first, and then you might realize how crappy your jokes are. Yer shit is weak.
    So. Much. Fail.

    Trump administration ended pandemic early-warning program to detect coronaviruses:

    https://www.latimes.com/science/stor...uses-detection
    Dennis Carroll, a widely respected scientist who headed USAID’s emerging threats division, oversaw the initiative for its duration, but retired around the time it was shut down. Carroll did not respond to an inquiry from The Times, but told the New York Times last year that by January 2019, the program had “essentially collapsed into hibernation,” and that its conclusion was due to “the ascension of risk-averse bureaucrats.”
    This isn't the first, or last we will hear of how the ball was completely dropped leading to this pandemic that brought the world to its knees. Question is, will anyone be held accountable at any time in the future?

    I was an early bc skier in this shitshow but stepping away while covfefe19 virus tightens on Utah. Will reevaluate when we start getting good signals here locally. Been catching the daily briefings by Sherbert and Spencer Cox. I'm a big Huntsmanjr guy in the govvy race but I like what Im seeing out of Cox. They are data driven and moving quickly involved in our supply chain to keep it coming since we are ahhhhsential. Im experied emt cert lotsa hazmat emergency response FEMA incident command cert my daughter almost 18 has almost emt cert will get it early may although done all the training. We called the local FD and put our names on a volley list and werent the first. The told me to call the PD so I'm on their volley list too. I'm healthy with PPE we have two different old folk couples on the street without family nearby and are now combining their grocery runs with ours. Cant do much about the macro so focusing on the micro is where it's at yall.

    Social dogstancing with three public school teachers yesterday all of us in masks. The workload they are pulling is ridiculous right now. Thank a teacher when you get a chance...

    The Captain of one of the worlds most powerful ships advertises that it is not combat ready, and you are surprised he is relieved?

    I’ll take a gamble and say he violated regulations.

    We retest when we have clinical suspicion, a negative test, and no other test explains the patient condition.

    67% it pretty shit sensitivity for a PCR. (false neg)
    Specificity is good.

    I've heard the rapid antibody tests have terrible sensitivity and specificity... like 50/50.

    Huh, I just learned where those stupid beaked masks that you see in cheezy souvenir stands in Venice came from. That, and country mansions.

    Wow, your president just asked 3m to stop shipping n95s to Canada and Latin America.

    Guess it’s not a hoax after all.

    He did. And should be removed. And he did the right thing. Hopefully his crew will be allowed to quarantine their sick so the rest of the boat does not get infected. When you try to run things up the hierarchy, and they fail you, you take measure outside of that. His career is shot. But the men and women under him now have a chance to not go down with the ship.

    Did you think it would have been better for him to keep his mouth shut and have the entire crew infected in the next week?
